The Big Family Craicle was launched this week by mum of three, model and TV personality Yvonne Keating and the company aim to encourage families all over Ireland to join the 'craicle' on Facebook where they will share great tips on how to make the most of a night in with the family.

Karen Smyth, Retail Marketing Manager at Bord Na Mona said, "The Bord Na Mona Effect is all about the positive things that happen when you light a fire, from creating a lovely warm atmosphere to bringing people together. The Big Family Craicle will add an extra spark to Irish living rooms this winter.

"We're inviting families to gather around a Bord Na Mona fire and take part in the fun. Whether it's playing board games, chatting and catching up or simply sitting back for a movie night – with The Big Family Craicle we hope everyone has a great night in around a Bord  Na Mona fire."
